    I was just reading the local back home newspaper when I saw that Jon Lieberman is writing a book about the Whitey Bulger Trial. Why in hell is he working for H-100 news when he is a real reporter in the middle of his career?

    probably a good steady paycheck and not a whole lot of actual work involved. plus it seems like they let him out to do other talking head/commentator gigs like CNN/HLN and that sort of thing.

    I find the Whitey Bulger story fascinating. There's a book called The Brothers Bulger by Howie Carr. Whitey's younger brother Billy was the President of the Massachusetts State Senate for almost twenty years. Billy is almost (he never killed anyone) as sleazy as his brother. Carr charges that Billy helped Whitey by interfering in Mass State Police investigations of his brother. He also furnished details to the Bush Campaign of what would become the Boston Harbor pollution scandal in the '88 Presidential race against Dukakis.

    A quick Google search revealed TEN books already published regarding the Whitey Bulger case. Eight more discovered at my local library. What is Lieberman going to reveal "new" info about the case? Yeah, right......:facepalm:

    One thing I will say about Lieberman, I gave him a tip about a story once, and he got back to me and told me he would look over my info.

    Was it a conspiracy about an alleged closeted wig wearer?

    My brother worked for Budweiser for an internship helping distribution in the Boston area back in the day and South Boston was a region he work a lot with. Bud used to sell all their beer to Whitey and Whitey would sell it to all the local liquor stores, pubs, and restaurants. He would get a piece of every alcoholic beverage sold in Southie.

    But do we need another Whitey Bulger book? There are at least one hundred of them. Plus there is a movie being made by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck and the TV show Brotherhood was loosely based on the Bulger brothers. Lieberman is a little late to the party on this.

    When Billy was in charge of the state senate he ran and hosted the St Patrick's day breakfast which was a roast of the local politicians. He would introduce everybody who was anybody in Boston and have a rip for each one. It was the funniest thing on television. When he left for umass as silber's replacement that breakfast was never the same.

    Whitey Bulger used to live in a trailer and roll his own cigarettes all day long and buy weed with his welfare money.

    Silber was never the President of UMass. He was the President of BU and later its Chancellor.

    His passion for his career exceeds the boiling point. One day his head will crack and spew out lava

    I don't think people necessarily write books because we NEED them. I think he's genuinely interested in the guy and is pursuing something that he wants to do. Goo fah Lieberman! :) (BTW, I never heard of Whitey Bulger til Lieberman started posting and talking so much about him).
